This version of Black Death was tied as a Tube Fly by Ken Broadhead. You will find many more of Ken's exceptional   flies on his page on this site,  The Flies of Ken Broadhead.

Ken's Notes: ...The name of this fly comes from  the Florida tarpon fly. Anything tied in red and black can be called Black Death. ...Donít see why it wouldn't work on steelhead.
